HOUSTON, March 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The American Cancer Society reports that those who quit smoking typically gain about 10 pounds. Many unwittingly simply substitute one bad habit for another and quickly turn to food to satisfy their compulsion to put something in their mouth. So, finding the best diet that will allay the temptation to reach for food instead of a cigarette, Diet Doc combined decades of research with the knowledge and expertise of their staff of specially trained doctors, nurses, and nutritional experts to create the best diet plans that help people struggling to quit smoking avoid overeating and weight gain.
New patients will complete a health questionnaire and consult online with a Diet Doc physician who will review health history and make recommendations for the best method of avoiding weight gain while also quitting smoking. MetWell, a specially formulated Diet Doc product, has proven successful because it contains three ingredients aimed at helping those struggling to avoid weight gain while also sticking to their commitment to quit smoking.
- Metformin - Improves insulin sensitivity on receptors, inhibits the liver's ability to produce new blood sugar, decreases intestinal absorption, resulting in decreased blood sugar levels.
- Bupropion - Originally developed by pharmaceutical companies as a smoking cessation assistant. Because mood and cravings are so closely intertwined with the process of dietary changes and weight loss, independent studies have shown that bupropion can also benefit weight loss;
- L-Carnitine - The primary function of L-Carnitine is to transport long-chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane within cells to burn fat as energy and is critically involved with fat metabolism.
Diet Doc combines meal and snack plans that are tailored to be specific to each patient's individual needs with their prescription treatments, enabling patients to quit smoking without weight gain by controlling hunger, cravings and loss of energy. In fact, over 25,000 actual patients who participated in a Diet Doc in-house survey reported losing 20 pounds or more per month during their smoking cessation journey.
The most important step when learning how to quit smoking without weight gain is securing a strong support system. For this reason, Diet Doc developed their diet plans that offer unlimited access to a team of experts who are passionate about helping everyone become healthier. Diet Doc patients can reach their team six days per week, who are always eager to answer questions, offer suggestions, or simply to lend their support, encouragement and guidance.
